I have 1.7 through the six launcher and I installed the beta but in the browser I always get a red x when I try to join a beta/1.7 server..Anyone else had this? The install on the beta patch seemed to take just a few seconds before it said finished, I wonder if I have to leave it longer or some shit. Very annoying and does result in 30 minutes of searching for a new spawn/server.
Beta launches through a separate exe, faggot.
E:\Arma2\Expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe -beta=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion -nosplash
Is the command line in the label that should be in the Arma2 folder afetr the patch.
Double-click it to receive bacon.
Anyone else get a DirectX 9 error when trying to run beta 93586?
Been playing a bit finally - died a lot at the beginning, but much better now.
Except I get horribly motion sick from the movement, so probably won't continue playing.
Took out a survivor at the other end of Bolota Airfield with the AS50. First shot knocked him out and he bled out before my followup shot reached the target.
According to the wiki there is an M4 variant with the M203 launcher, has anyone came across one yet? It would automatically be my favourite gun
So, I had an offroad truck (land rover?) fixed up, and joined a bunch of guys who were finishing a Stary farming raid, now armed to the teeth. 7 people total, including 2 ghillie suits, 3 NVGs, a DMR, an M24, and an MP5SD among them and the rest with M4s and shit. I arranged to pick them up north of Stary with the truck and one of them brought me a kobra as I had only a winchester. We all load up in the truck (extra ammo, grenades, car parts, meat, blood, etc in the trunk) looking badass as fuck and decide to go town to town generally causing mayhem. I drive about half a kilometer and then accidentally hit a 1-foot tall stone wall, getting the truck stuck on it between the front and back wheels. It explodes. Everyone dies. Nobody makes it back before our corpses are all gone.
So, we all fix up another land rover at green mountain on a different server and take it to pogorevka to top off the tank. We find a GAZ already operational and decide to keep both, even though we're down to just 4 people now. When we're ready to roll out of town, we start convoying down the road, truck in front, GAZ in back (I am now forbidden from driving and am riding shotgun in the truck). A guy who was afk in the town tells us to stop and wait for him. Both cars stop, but one of the drivers desyncs, so I watch in horror as the GAZ just keeps moving forward, passing right through the middle of the stopped truck. The truck thinks for a moment, then explodes, throwing me and the driver to the side of the road unconscious. The GAZ is totally fine, 50 meters behind us, stopped safely now that the desync has resolved. I bleed out, but the crew of the GAZ manage to bandage the land rover driver at 200 blood and transfuse him.

the m16/203 is fine use the first arrow from the 203 sight as your irons (aces irons are better)
Rocket back from E3 yet? The disappearing body thing really needs to be fixed.
We fixed a bus up in electro today and drove around for a bit until I knocked a tree over and its bugged/wheel broke, despite not looking broken.
I'm still stuck in Vybor at 3000 blood and bleeding, logged out waiting for somebody to come around with bandages. I have an MP5SD and loads of food and drink and essentials, I just can't go on without a fucking bandage.
Also forgot to mention I had a run in with a bandit - My BF3 skills overcame and he died. (I only had a makarov, and I used up all my ammo killing him). - Managed to bandage myself up at about 6000 blood, but now screen all wonky - will probaly just restart
